Are Online Connections Reality?

Looking back, I haven't always needed people. Maybe due to the fact that I have 3 younger sisters, 6 Aunts and a large extended family.  I don't recall the joy of connecting, the way I do now.  Is it a manic thing?  Is it even real?  This emotional thrill of connecting with old friend & making new ones creates a buzz that makes me freekin HAPPY.  I can't help but wonder, is it a legit happiness? How has my life been changed by these connections?  
In all honesty...YES! I am happier now that 4 years ago...pre Facebook, pre Twitter, Pre Social Media life.  If I need to express myself and feel heard....I CAN NOW!  If I am antsy and want to be naughty, I CAN! Throw an elusive post out there and the banter begin! We can support local business just by LIKING their page. We can make a friends day just by posting a silly joke on their wall....we can wish happy birthday to people that we never would have an opportunity too!
Connecting, sharing invoke real feelings...for's JOY. It may be related to Manic but I'll take it!!

Yesterday? EMOTIONAL, knowing I was going to indulge for monthly Prime Rib dinner w/friends at the Moose. Felt bothered all day...knowing I would stray off my Medifast Plan & have a cocktail or two. HOWEVER, it is done and over with and I feel way better today. I did have 2 Vodka Tonics, a portion of prime rib, enjoyed the salad & beans & left the potato. So, yes, I varied off track....but not over indulgently, Moderately would be more appropriate.
When I weighed in this morning,...was down a 1 lb.  Whew....
We have life changing events upcoming which equate to much stress.  Am focusing on making positives out of negatives...using the experience to learn,to be more physically fit and better our lives, economically as well as spiritually.
That's the Buzz in my bonnet for today!!

Making it though Oscar Weekend.....barely

Monday, Medifast Monday! I am actually glad it's here! 18 lbs gone, as I start week 4. But, oh how this past weekend was a challenge.
I wanted to eat eat eat on Sunday. Stayed home all lieu of the Oscars....(My Superbowl ).  2 of my Medifast meals were back-to-back pancakes....I could of had 5. Wanted Wine, chocolate, chips....and so on.  HOWEVER, I maintained very well....with just a few bites of NO-NOs.

18lbs...and my knees aren't hurting. Laying in bed at night, my arms aren't falling asleep. My face is becoming more defined. My dimples are popping once again. My Long arms are slimming down. My toe ring is loosening up. My shoes too.

My motto for this week... "NOTHING Tastes as good as SKINNY FEELS"

Was asked what my blog would be answer: complete randomness. Am a Realtor, love real some of that. Am approaching mid life, working on being more healthy and weighing a parent...a wife, a sister, daughter, aunt, employee, tax payer, housekeep (not a great one) goes on and on.
 Really, this blog would be for and about ME! The moments I get to spend writing, sharing and expressing MYSELF.  It probably is not the best reason to be blogging.
 In my industry, people blog to drive business their way.  I am more interested in bettering myself through connections, relations, conversations.... I won't over think what I write...but just let is flow.
( kind of like real life) There will be punctuation errors, political incorrectness and mood swings, i.e. FLAWS. But we are all flawed.
The older I get the more I relish these imperfections and realize that the people that DON'T works so hard to hide their flaws are the people that are most genuine and I want to be around.
Short, sweet posts... (opposite of me...tall & sassy). Real, maybe manic & impulsive and definitely FLAEWED.
